i48 2023 Award Winners
2023 is the 20th Anniversary of the Idaho Forty-Eight Hour Film Festival and Competition (“i48”). Over the past twenty years, 778 teams have embraced the challenge to write, produce, cast, costume, secure locations, shoot, edit, and musically score a completed film in just 48 hours. Making the safe assumption that i48 films are an average of five (5) minutes long, this means i48 teams have produced 3890 minutes of movies – or 65 hours. If you wanted to watch every i48 film ever made, you’d need two and half days to do it.
Filmmakers from the Treasure Valley and throughout Idaho can join this proud history by signing up now for i48/2023. This i48 will follow the same rules and format as our past 19 years, but we know you’ll feel extra amazing being a part of our 20th! The Competition will run from 6:00pm on June 2, 2023 to 6:00pm on June 4, 2023. As always, all completed films will be included in a public screening at The Flicks in Boise on Saturday, June 10, 2023. The “Best of i48/2023”, showcasing the award winnings films, will play on Sunday, June 11, 2023 at the historic Egyptian Theatre in downtown Boise.
All participating teams in i48’s 20th Anniversary will receive some free 20th Anniversary swag to mark the occasion. Additionally, we’re bringing back t-shirts with some special commemorative i48 20th Anniversary t-shirts available for sale at all screenings!
i48 can already vote in elections and next year, i48 will be able to legally drink. Kids grow up so fast these days…
